Sam Bailey has hit back at Katie Hopkins, after the controversial former 'Apprentice' contestant branded her "a fat mum in a jumpsuit".

The 'X Factor' winner claimed that she was not bothered about Katie's comments, adding that she was "bigger and better" than getting involved in a war of words with the rent-a-gob.

She told journalists including HuffPost UK: "I'm not even going to bother retaliating, because I'm not going to stoop that low.

"If she wants to go around cursing, that's her prerogative. I'm bigger and better than that. I know who I am and I'm not going to be put down by it and be upset about it because I don't really care!"

Sam added: "If that's how she makes her living, then more fool her."

Katie has been at the centre of controversy in recent weeks, receiving a ban from 'This Morning' after cracking a joke on Twitter about life expectancy in Scotland following the fatal helicopter crash on the banks of the Clyde in Glasgow.

Sam Bailey's single 'Skyscraper' is available to buy now and the profits are being split between two charities - Great Ormond St Children's Hospital and Together for Short Lives.
